      Wonderfully easy & quick dessert!! I invited last minute company for dinner & hadn't thought about dessert. Printed this off at work, called hubby to go get a cake mix & whipped this up while putting the finishing touches on dinner. By the time dinner was over & coffee was served, this cake was ready to eat!! I did happen to have a can of whipped cream so I served with that - definitely not necessary. This cake is rich with a nice light texture. The peanut butter flavour is strong & the crunchy topping is perfect. I just left the peanuts whole to save a minute or two but other than that, followed the recipe exactly.

      So yummy! Made this over the weekend and we really like it. I did frost it with chocolate frosting although it would be great without it. I just like icing on cakes so added it to this one. Very easy to make and wonderful flavor. Thanks ratherbeswimmin!
